I'm in Book Heaven

After a month of being on the road, I'm finally able to get back to doing some book review posts. Here's a preview of the pile that came in while I was gone--books I hope to be writing about here and there over the next few weeks. Judging just from their covers, I can't wait to read them:

Dirty Girls: Erotica for Women, edited by Lusty Lady Rachel Kramer Bussel (hint: VERY hot cover)

It's a Jungle Out There: The Feminist Survival Guide to Politically Inhospitable Environments, by Amanda Marcotte (love the superhero cover on this one!)

Maiden USA: Girl Icons Come of Age
, by Kathleen Sweeney (haunting cover image of girl staring back)

Parenting, Inc.: How We Are Sold on $800 Strollers, Fetal Education, Baby Sign Language, Sleeping Coaches, Toddler Couture, and Diaper Wipe Warmers--and What It Means for Our Children
, by Pamela Paul (awesome subtitle is so long not much room for image, but image is of baby in a dollar-patterned diaper and very a propros)

Stay tuned...!

I just read a review for Parenting Inc. and can not wait to get it. This was the kind of book I wanted to read while I was pregnant.

I'm glad Pamela has written this! The industry of parenthood terrifies me. On top of it all, Marco and I have a very small space and will probably -- when the day comes that we one day have a baby -- convert the closet into baby nook! So where goes "stuff"? Hopefully most of it can stay in the store :)
